Ab workout after surgery?

I hade surgery to remove to strictures on November 5th. Almost 3 months ago.
Is it safe to do ab workouts? Is there a point where it can be too much?

I've been worried to do anything that involves strain on my stomach. Dr okayed me to exercise a month ago.

You're probably just as likely to put strain on your core while doing other exercises too, since it's key in helping you balance weight with certain lifts.

It's safe too, or at least I've not had a problem with it. Just don't go too hard too fast.

I think after 3 months especially after a lap surgery it's ok. Ask the surgeon to be sure and start easy.
